Description

DynDNS status uses red/green to indicate its status. Especially in a lightweight typeface, this is inaccessible to the 10% of males who are red/green colorblind.

Attached patch adds bold style to the red status and notes the difference in the help text. An up/down indicator would be much better, but this is quick & dirty and works for me.

It would be easy enough to add status icons for good/bad to Services->Dynamic DNS, and to the Dynamic DNS dashboard widget. The question is which icons:
1) Up and down arrow icons, like the Interfaces widget, or;
2) Running/stopped icons like Services Status widget, or ?

The "Up arrow", "Down arrow" or "Running" icons are not quite the correct thing. The "stopped" icon seems good for when the address is not up-to-date. icon_error.gif looks the thing to use when it is wrong, but I can't see "icon_good.gif". Is there a "tick"/"good" icon somewhere in the pfSense themes already that could be used for the good (green) case?
